Yisrael, Erik, Ken, thank you very much for your comments and suggestions!
Let me try and respond to your comments individually:
@Ken: Yes, I agree Ken that the pauses between the phrases are getting too long. It never crossed my mind that it disrupts the 12/8 flow. Shortening the pauses will not be that hard
@Erik: Thank you, and yes, this is one of those pieces one can work on for ever.
@Yisrael: Thank you for giving such elaborate feedback. In a way you are confirming my 'strategy' for this piece - you hear a romantic, guitaristic style which is more or less my intention. Perhaps you say that I am overdoing it, which is a fair comment and someting I shoud be thinking of - like you, many people will say Bach's music will speak for itself, letting the natural phrasing do the work.
So good food for thought, thank you again,
Best regads, Rutger
